Which ATV and WHY?
 
Polaris, Yamaha, Honda, Suzuki, Kawasaki or Can Am? Utility ATV for 4X4. Which ones are good? Which ones are bad? What size if I want to put a two-up seat on it and take my bitch for a ride in the Yoop?

I'm thinking I want EFI and at least a 500cc. No shifting and fully automatic.

Too much $$$ and needs to fit in the bed of my truck.

Yamaha Grizzly 700 FI or EFI. I put about 3,000 miles on mine (work) this summer. Not a single problem. The boss has over 10k on his 2007 version, and we have only changed the oil and put gas in the bastard. No matter the weather or temp, it starts every time and drives awesomely.

...

It also has enough go to clear the finishline tabletops at a certain race track or two (I wouldn't know that).

Drove one with a broken collarbone and was fine thanks to the kickass Electronic Steering Assist!

Your bitch will be able to steer it all by her lonesome and even haul you home when you drink too much and pass out across the rack!

Next requirement.

Under $5k. Preferably closer to $4k.

Buy used.

cuzzinolaf 01-23-2012 10:52 PM

I planned on it.

It is a used 2007. My trailer is basically sold so now I need a new toy. :flipoff:

Slamdry 01-25-2012 08:06 AM

Isn't that what PolarisRich has? He seems to love his.:thumbss: Good machine, I looked at one last summer.

Madcow 01-25-2012 08:41 AM

i would look at the 500 sportsman to be about one of the best atv's out there. that 500 engine runs forever. my brother had 1 that he sold it at 7000 miles and it still ran great. when he trail rode with the polaris 600 and bigger atv's he got a lot better mileage but still could do anything they could.

honda and yami are known for bullet proof engines. i wouldnt be scared to buy any late model atv.

cuzzinolaf 01-25-2012 11:00 AM

This thing is like brand new with 150 miles. He used it to plow his driveway and that is it.

Gotmud 01-25-2012 11:26 AM

What happened with the DRZ?

Sold it long ago. Was fun but an ATV is better for the type of riding I want to do.

cuzzinolaf 01-25-2012 11:30 AM

One more shitty season and the M8 will be up for sale, so will the ATV, and I'll be buying a side by side.

Here we go again. Only a matter of time for the peanut gallery to chime in about how you are finally on a Poo.

LOL, tis' all good.

The Gerbil 01-25-2012 12:16 PM

Maybe I should go buy a Cat to even things out. Perhaps I can make it over three miles before blowing one of those up.

fgsacts 01-25-2012 12:35 PM

Haven't blown one up yet. Did fry a Ski Don't on Gogebic a few years ago. Gerbs, Cuzz will probably sell you his cheap at the end of this season.

The Gerbil 01-25-2012 12:49 PM

I might steer away from an Olaf pre-owned unit. He isn't exactly afraid to flog the piss out of his steeds.

fgsacts 01-25-2012 02:11 PM

Very true. Maybe there is some string bean with a stinky side kick in Idaho he could sell it to. What goes around comes around.

I fawked up a cylinder on my 2008 the first year I had it. It wasn't bad and still ran fine so could have been that way from when I bought it. Seems like someone started it cold and went balls out... which I never do.
